Repair Permissions is taking FOREVER!!

Hi all,

All of a sudden whenever I do a Smart Update, the repair permissions part is taking a very long time before it starts the back up, about an hour. I guess I could uncheck 'Repair Permissions' but I'm concerned this might be a symptom of something bigger.

This was happening before I upgraded to Leopard, so not sure what the deal is.

I'm running the latest version of SD.

I'm not sure of this is a problem w/SD or something system wide.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

It's Leopard. (Please also note that we're not fully compatible with Leopard, even though that has nothing to do with this particular thing -- Leopard is really slow at repairing permissions for most users.)

I could of swore this was happening before Leopard, but maybe I'm wrong.

Also my transfer rates suck, around 5-6mbps. Is that normal for a USB2 Drive?

Thanks for the reply. (get going on the Leopard update! )

Yeah, that's pretty typical of USB2: it's significantly slower than FireWire.

Current Situation?/Update

Thanks for the thread on permissions - I have been experiencing similar difficulties. So this is a leopard problem? - It's true that Disk utility says "repairing permissions" with an estimate of less than 1 min and then takes forever and ever.

Any idea if / when this might get better. To be honest I trust my SuperDuper backup situation more than Time Machine.

Who knows when Apple will get around to making it right? Meantime, unless you have some specific reason to, just don't repair 'em. No real need.

As I've said, this is something we have no control over at all... I'd suggest not repairing permissions.
